Follow Your Dreams

Hi everyone,

Today I have another card using 'stamps' which I created using one of the new ModaScrap Flourish Dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. For this card I used the Flower Lace 1 die. 

This card was inspired by a card fellow ECD Design Team member Sanna Lippert created when she shared a card she made using one of the new flower lace dies which she had turned into a stamp by die cutting the die from fun foam. I loved the idea of using the die in this way that I had to create my own flower lace stamps and create a card or two. You can see Sanna's tutorial on how to create stamps from dies here.

This time round I decided to stamp the Flower Lace image using black ink so I could color the image using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. It has been ages since I have played with these. I wanted to have a bright look to the card. 

When I placed the 'stamp' on my MISTI I placed it so that it would stamp on one corner and then I was able to turn the cardstock around and stamp on the other end.

I kept the inside of my card simple by adding some stripes of pink cardstock and weaved where they overlapped. I also added a sentiment.

Here is my 'stamp' I created which was die cut from fun foam. Once I had die cut the image I adhered the fun foam flourish onto thick acetate (I used old packaging) so that the stamp was sturdier. I used my MISTI to stamp the image by adding some Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape to the back of the acetate to attach it to the door of the MISTI.
